All tment Glutton
Welcome to my blog.
The Allotment Glutton is where I share allotment anecdotes, potting shed politics, plot experiments, harvests & seasonal Plot2Plate recipes for maximum exploitation of fruit and veg gluts.
My garden and allotment plots are based in St Leonards on Sea, near Hastings, East Sussex.
My blog updates are also on Twitter and Facebook. Sign up on the contact page to receive a regular newsletter.
My recipe index will grow as produce is harvested from my plot, so check back regularly.

Broad Beans 2
By Angie, Apr 3 2013 09:00AM
The Aquadulce Claudia broad beans sown a few weeks ago are now 4-5 inches high and ready to start being hardened off in the coldframe ready to sow outside, once the soil has warmed up under a cloche.
So, the cloche has been moved to an area on the legume bed on plot 39 ready to warm the soil up.
I will then sow some more seed about three weeks after these plants go in, to hopefully stagger the crop. A final sowing will follow some four weeks after this sowing to continue the harvest.
Any favourite broad bean recipes out there? I will be posting some up soon!
